Call for Exhibition Material, 8 January 2016

To commemorate the centenary of the 1916 Rising, the National Print Museum is organising a special exhibition seeking to engage the public in an understanding of the Easter Rising from a fresh perspective. The exhibition will explore the role of printers active in 1916 and the central role of printed media in shaping the image and meaning of the Rising.

The exhibition committee is now calling for original material relating to these two principal print-related themes. Potential material might include: printers’ records, photographs, newspapers, posters, memorial cards, other contemporary printed ephemera or indeed 1966 printed commemorative material.

An open day will take place on Sunday 24 January from 14.00 until 16.00, where interested parties are invited to call into the Museum with their material, which they would be willing to loan to the National Print Museum for the duration of the exhibition. The committee will meet with visitors on the day and photograph potential exhibition material. Please note that artefacts will not be collected by the Museum on this date.

The National Print Museum is located in the Garrison Chapel of Beggars Bush Barracks, Ballsbridge, Dublin 4.
